This Camp is open to all players no matter club affiliation
This camp will incorporate position specific techniques designed to help both outfield players and goalkeepers. Players will become more comfortable in front of goal through a high number of goal-scoring repetitions in a wide variety of situations. Coaching staff will utilize this opportunity to provide goalkeepers with specific feedback as well as making field players more clinical in front of goal. Goalkeepers will work on balance, footwork and various types of catches, distribution, shot stopping, and positioning among other techniques. Field players will learn proper technique for striking the ball for power, finesse shots, bending the ball, chipping, balance, accuracy, and much more. At the end of each session we will combine the outfield players and goalkeepers to play small-sided games to goal.

The purpose of Arkansas Rising is about players playing at the appropriate level to enhance their individual player development instead of just forming teams. We believe that the overall level of training will improve, therefore creating a more challenging playing environment for each player, regardless of their placement within the club. Research shows that when a player is placed at the appropriate level, their opportunity for growth will 'rise'. This partnership expands our talent and the depth created will lead to more accurate player placement thus allowing more room for individual players to grow from within the organization.
